Ten Zion Lutheran School students participated in the Springfield Lutheran High School Spelling Bee. Nine central Illinois Lutheran schools participated in six grade divisions for grades three to eight. ZLS participants were Claire Steiner, Trent Koehler, Reese McCuan, Cara Farnam, Elijah Burton, Will Messner, J.R. Lynn, Kathryn Nobbe, Emily Messner and Will Stambaugh.

Claire and Cara were the champions of the third-grade division by spelling all 30 of their words correctly.
